Kyler Murray: After opening the season as the highest-scoring quarterback in the first two weeks of the season, Murray has been the QB16 (18.5 points), QB9 (22.6 points), and QB22 (13.7 points). Last week was the first real down week for Murray and what was surprising about it was that he had just one rushing yard after averaging 27.3 yards on the ground per game over the first four weeks.
The Browns were absolutely destroyed a week ago by Justin Herbert, allowing 9.3 yards per pass attempt and four touchdown passes to go with 398 passing yards. Without Jadeveon Clowney available last week, the Browns pressured Herbert on just 25.0% of his dropbacks (29th) after pressure rates of 53.7%, 53.3%, and 36.8% the previous three games.
They will need to get home here as Murray is completing 57.6% of his passes under pressure compared to 79.5% kept clean. Even under pressure, Murray is still averaging 10.2 yards per pass attempt, so even getting home can fail.
The Browns defense is better than it showed a week ago, but Murray is also a quarterback that requires perfect defense and sometimes that is still not enough, which is why he is a weekly QB1 option.
